The signs of Spring are everywhere!
I invited Jack and Gus to join me in planting some Geraniums, Pansies and Basil. Jack was interested, but Gus turned me down and chose to play inside. After some digging, watering, and re-arranging of the front porch, Jack excitedly exclaimed, " Mom, this is almost as fun as playing VIDEO games!" Realizing what he just said, Jack ran back inside the house to report this epiphany to Gus.
Jack: (Yelling up the stairs) Gus, planting flowers is ALMOST as fun as playing video games!
Gus: (Yelling from upstairs) What? Almost as fun?
Jack: Yes! Come! Come out and see!
Gus ran out the front door to the front yard and eagerly starting planting and watering with us. He loved it.
Gus: Mom, aren't the flowers just beautiful?
Me: Yes, Gus. They are VERY beautiful.....mostly because you and Jack helped me plant them.
